Porn actor Brandon Jones: Go Big and Stay Home
When Michael Lucas came to town in May of this year, he had already scouted who he would be putting his made-in-Montréal All Star Studs and Backdoor, and Brandon Jones was one of them. Along with his real-life boyfriend Adrian Long, and local porn-star Pierre Fitch, Brandon Jones has been catapulted into the gay adult video big-leagues with more than just his sculpted frame and beautiful butt to show off. He’s been anointed as a scout and producer for Lucas Entertainment in the 514.

While he hasn’t quit his day job yet, Brandon will start producing more Montréal-made scenes, using local actors and crew, with Lucas Entertainment Canada. The project will represent a major shift for porn production in Montréal, since there are currently no major houses shooting here, and certainly none with the publicity, production values, and strict no-bareback policy that have earned Michael Lucas his reputation and commercial success.
2B: What was it like filming All Star Studs and Backdoor on your home turf?
BJ: Backdoor was shot with Adrian at JP’s strip club (formerly Adonis). I was playing a stripper who wants to work there, and Adrian plays the manager of a club. I was basically getting paid to fuck with my boyfriend!
Allstar Studs was filmed in a loft that the company rented in St-Henri. We had to do a little scenario where we walked around and kissed on the street; passers-by screamed “fags” and we just laughed, the crew did too. We told ourselves that those people aren’t really from Montréal.
2B: Agreed. You’re often described online as a “power bottom.” What does this term mean for you?
BJ: Not everyone is very good at it and is comfortable doing it. I’m not just gonna do the starfish. I’m going to be as submissive and aggressive and more top-like. It’s a life passion, it’s an art. My forthcoming book will be entitled The Art of Bottoming by Brandon Jones.
2B: I would definitely buy that book, for my date, I mean.
2B: How do you stay healthy as a porn actor, both sexually and physically?
BJ: Safety first! I will never shoot a scene without a condom. Lucas Entertainment will never shoot a scene without a condom. If all they ever see in porn is protected porn, it will come a little bit more naturally for them. We always film the actor putting the condom on. It’s not magical that the condom goes on! Porn should be a fantasy but should be a portrayal of real life as well.
2B: And what about that BODY?
BJ: I have a very active job, I walk everywhere. I love dancing and taking classes at the gym. I have a good metabolism and keep myself busy. I don’t like junk [food]. I was a figure skater before (hence the ass), from 6-15 years old. When I was 15 I had a big ass, and big legs and a skinny torso. At 15, I broke both my feet in a rough landing on the ice. I decided my health was more important than the medals. I didn’t have many friends because I was living in arenas. I’m too much of a people person I realized.
2B: And by people person, you mean you liked cock.
BJ: I discovered I was gay at 16, I had been dating girls before, and there were no gays around us at all.
When my body discovered I was gay and I tried it, it was like a calling.
I was having sex with my girlfriend and I was thinking about my best friend naked! So I told her that I thought I was gay. There was a chat-room in Sherbrooke, and I tried it right away because I thought I was missing something. And it all came naturally afterwards. That’s why I did figure skating, and played with Barbies, and that’s why I love girl clothes [laughs].
2B: Many Montréalers will remember you as the sweet smiling shirtless boy who served sangria on the rooftop at Sky. You transitioned pretty quickly from the country boy to city-gay…
BJ: After I recovered from the skating accident, I moved to Montréal at 17. I went a bit crazy when I got here… I come from an extremely open-minded family and everyone in my family was supportive of every boyfriend I ever had. My family is even supportive of the porn project.
2B: What will you be doing to promote the auditions and films you’ll be doing with Adrian?
BJ: We’ll be posting some ads, and will be using some talent from his local stable, as well as some European actors. I got to meet a lot of actors and connections we made while Michael Lucas was in town, as well as on recent trips to New York and LA. For the upcoming film, we’ll be using a script that Adrian and I wrote together.
2B: I just have to ask, how did you come up with the name “Brandon Jones”?
BJ: I’ve always loved the name Brandon, so I chose that. And the “Jones” is in honour of my idol, Samantha Jones, Kim Cattrall’s character in Sex and the City
2B: She’s my idol too! She also does a lot of advocacy around sex, is that something you’re interested in doing with your newfound fame?
BJ: I’ve always been someone who is open about who I am. I don’t see sexuality as something bad. Talking to teens to let them know that it’s OK to want to experience sex, and that sexuality is something good as long as you’re smart with it will be my contribution. The importance is to stay who you are no matter what.
